Strawberry Snowballs

Strawberry Snowballs

To make these simple cookies, I added strawberry powder to my crispy snowball cookie recipe.
They have a strawberry flavor and a strawberry scent...and the pink color makes them cute too!

Ingredients: Makes 40 cookies (5 g each)

Cake flour
75 g
Powdered sugar
30 g
Almond powder
30 g
Skim milk
15 g
Strawberry powder
5 g
60 g


1. Bring the butter to room temperature. Sift together all the ingredients except the butter and strawberry powder.
2. Use a rubber spatula to cream the butter which has been brought to room temperature.
3. Add the dry sifted ingredients from step (2) all at once and mix.
4. After it's mixed together, add the strawberry powder and gather the dough together.
5. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. (I make the dough the day before and leave it in the refrigerator for a day)
6. Heat the oven to 170ºC. Roll the dough into 2 - 2.5mm (5 g) balls and place on a baking sheet, leaving a space between each cookie.
7. Bake for about 15 minutes in a 170ºC oven. (The cookies will be very soft when you take them out)
8. Mix 40 g of powdered sugar and 5 g of strawberry powder (not listed in the ingredients) in a bowl.
9. When the cookies have cooled off a little, coat them in the sugar and strawberry powder mixture from step (8). (You can use extra strawberry powder if you want)
10. They're done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I had a lot of leftover freeze-dried strawberries, so I made them into a powder and mixed it into cookie dough.
